The City of Ham Lake along with the Ham Lake Area Chamber of Commerce invites you to participate in Heart Safe Ham Lake! A Heart Safe Community promotes education about sudden cardiac arrest and trains people in hands-only CPR and the use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED).
Sudden Cardiac Arrest is a condition in which the heart stops suddenly without warning. Cardiovascular events are the second leading cause of death in Minnesota and victims are more likely to survive if bystanders begin hands only CPR and use an AED while waiting for emergency services to arrive.
To learn more or to attend an upcoming class, visit the Heart Safe Ham Lake Facebook page.
